Ranking The New York Jets First-Round NFL Draft Candidates

10. Myles Jack, OLB, UCLA

Myles Jack is the first of many linebacker candidates in the Jets mix.

Aside from second-year guy Lorenzo Mauldin, New York has very little to speak of when it comes to speed edge rushers. However, it’s unlikely the Jets go Jack for one very specific reason.

This defense desperately needs an edge guy in the worst way, however, Jack is more of a WILL in a 4-3 scheme.

There’s no question Maccagnan could draft the versatile linebacker, but he doesn’t fit the Jets most desperate need.
